Monte James, is a lifelong fan and participant in the great American sport of rodeo. Monte's rodeo career started at the age of 5 riding calves and steers then on to bulls and barebacks in the National High School Rodeo Association and on to the Mid States Rodeo Circuit.
After a rodeo injury at Vermillion South Dakota in 1999, Monte packed up his spurs and picked up a microphone and turned his focus to another lifelong love -radio. Monte got our start of one of our original affiliate stations KBRX in O'Neill, NE. His groundbreaking show the "Sioux Steel Rodeo Report" was broadcast to rural communities across 5 states from WNAX in Yankton, SD.
This prototype evolved into the weekly Territorial Rodeo Update now heard on over 50 stations across the Midwest and growing daily. This unique show follows Heartland P.R.C.A. Rodeo athletes as they progress in the standings throughout the year all the way to the National Finals Rodeo. TRU is fun, fast paced, well produced and very popular with advertisers and listeners alike! Monte also performs the announcing duties at rodeos and bull ridings across the Territorial coverage area including the Territorial Professional Bull Riding Tour.
Monte's pride and joy is his 11 year old son, Parker. Who is the spitting image of his Father.

Long live the great American sport of rodeo!
I grew up in the country but never was much of a cowboy. I hayed for various ranchers and worked on a couple of ranches around the Gordon, NE area.
To tell ya the truth, though, I got tired of "workin for a livin";. So, I found a way to make a living "without really workin". I went to work for radio station KSDZ in the fall of 1990 on a part time basis. Over the years I've worked at other stations, such as KKLS/KKMK in Rapid City, SD and KOKZ in Waterloo, IA. I even drove truck for CRST in Cedar Rapids, IA and hauled blocks and mud for West River Masonry outta Rapid City. But, that was too much like work! So, I came back to Gordon - back to KSDZ, "The Twister."
I found me a good woman, one who's "willin" to put up with me. So, Rebecca and I got hitched and rounded out our little tribe with 3 sons, Justice, Noah and Sam.
Now I knock the dust off Monte and help him put together the Territorial Rodeo Update to keep you fans informed about the accomplishments of the athletes in America's sport, rodeo. Glad to have you along; hope ya can ride along with us awhile.
